The Spin Physics Detector (SPD) is one of the two large setups at the NICA collider under construction at JINR (Dubna). The ultimate goal of the studies at SPD is measurement of different spin observables in polarized proton-proton, deuteron-deuteron and  proton-deuteron collisions sensitive to the polarized gluonic structure of the nucleon at the luminosity up to 10^32 cm^-2*s^-1 and \sqrt{s} up to 27 GeV.
SPD will consist of the superconducting magnetic system, silicon tracker based on the DSSD and MAPS technologies, straw mini-drift tubes tracker, time-of-flight system, electromagnetic «shashlyk»-type calorimeter, muon (range) and local-polarimetry systems. The high performance free-streaming DAQ system will be able to operate at the collision rate up to 4 MHz.
